Louis Murphy switches agents

In what has become a familiar trend, agent Drew Rosenhaus has signed a new client.

Rosenhaus has landed Oakland Raiders fourth-round wide receiver Louis Murphy.

“We are happy to announce that we have signed Louis Murphy as a new client,” Rosenhaus wrote on his Twitter account. “Louis has a great opportunity to contribute to the Raiders receiving core this season. He has been very impressive in the offseason workouts and camps.”

Murphy was previously represented by DeBartolo Sports and Entertainment.

Murphy is a 6’2,” 203-pounder from the University of Florida with 4.43 speed in the 40-yard dash.

He caught 38 passes for 655 yards and seven touchdowns last season.

For his career, he registered a total of 77 receptions for 1,245 yards and a dozen touchdowns.

    I’m surprised they didn’t trade back into the 1st round to draft the guy. He sounds fast.

    Where did he play college ball?

    Florida

    Is Rosenhaus stealing clients?
    Is he too big for other agents to report?
    Someone needs to look into him with a scrutinizing eye.

    Of course he’s fast… he’s from Florida.

    Hate to say it but he may be better that DHB when it’s all said and done. Time will tell.

    Wait a minute, this guy switched agents!?!? It must mean that he is contemplating a holdout or else he is just an evil person. That’s what it meant when Andre Smith switched agents so the same must apply to this guy right?

    He’s got that legendary ESS-EEE-SEE speed. Now he’s ready to join the long line of previous Florida WR busts.

    Yeah, that’d be weird…..a guy with two functioning legs, and hands that have a full range of motion…..who knew he might be a better wideout?

    I actually have more hope for him than DHB.

    This guy actually has NFL talent at WR unlike Percy Harvin who was used as a gimmick on a lot of plays.
    Right now, the Raiders WRs are unknown and every position is up for grabs. Higgins needs to stay in the slot because he’s a dangerous threat there. Schilens and Murphy could surprise the league this year or next. DHB will be a work in progress.
    Joey Galloway had a similar college career to DHB and he’s still in the league. They crapped on the Seahawks hard for reaching for him while JJ Stokes was the consensus #1 WR in the draft that year and he fell to #10 to the…….*drumroll please* Niners. Sound familiar?
    Here’s hoping history repeats itself.

    It’s good to know that I’ll be seeing Rosenhaus this year in the biggity biggity O.
    Do you think he might be able to nogotiate some grass for that infield.
    God, I can’t wait until the whole world gets to see that baseball turf on Monday night.
    What year is it?
    Your telling me that in 2009 with the amount of technology this world has you can’t put some sort of grass on that dirt.
    That alone is an embarrasment.
    Welcome Drew, see what you can do for us.

    Having more hope for this guy is not a slight on DHB. They both have skills.

    Like it matters.
    They could be playing in 3 feet of raw sewage and the outcome would be the same for both the A’s AND Raiders.

    You’re just another closet Raider fan, TFBuckFutter.
    There you are in every thread about the Raiders, making comment after comment.

    Raw Sewage…
